finally fixed!

Hearing aid is finally adjusted right, I think. Shane, wow. He had all these computer problems, and he worked SO hard to get at least 1 laptop working just so he could get my hearing aid adjusted before my sister's wedding. The audiology's closed on Saturdays, but he still went in on Saturday morning just to adjust my hearing aid. He knew how important the wedding was and how important it was for me to be able to hear what was going on so... wow. I don't think Kerri would have done that. I'm definitely going to continue to see Shane for any hearing issues I have. I just like what he does better than what Kerri does. I just haven't been happy with what Kerri has done with my hearing aid, so I'll just stick with Shane. Now, let's just get my FM transmitter working right again. How many times have I had that stupid thing replaced now? 2 or 3 times since 2001, I think it was. That transmitter sure does break pretty easily... I'd get a new, different transmitter, but I certainly don't have the money for it.

dreams are... interesting?

Well.... I had this dream last night... in which I had gotten a cochlear implant. Yeah, so I've been highly interested in cochlear implants for a few years now and have been wanting to get one for quite some time, but to DREAM about it? What gives? It was just too realistic too, and weird at some point too. I mean, in the dream, I actually went through the surgery and the activation and everything... But then again, several nights ago I did have a dream where I was about to undergo the cochlear implant surgery, like being prepped for it, now that I think of it. But last night's was just whoa... It's just stuck with me throughout the day and I kept thinking about it off and on. It was realistic enough. I even woke up with a sore neck, and usually those who go through the CI surgery will have a sore neck for a couple of days just from their head having been turned to the side so the surgeon can make the incision behind the ear... Yeah, real weird.

Anyway, finally sent off that request letter to the Meningitis Angels organization for the $250 for the CI evaluation. The founder of the organization emailed me, and told me I should write a request letter, so ok I will. So I wrote the letter on July 2 while I was at work (mom thought I was nuts that I would even do this at work but hey, I get bored!) and finally sent it off today.
